Haunted Bookshop from @Dran

It's listed as a blend of Burley, Perique, and Virginia.
I am tasting a bit of spice, but no leathers or smoky BBQ flavors (no Latakia). It's pretty smooth, burns real well, and produces lots of smoke like a cigar would.

Burn seems to be less fuss than some others I've tried, but this blend is almost crunchy dry. On the plus side, it's staying lit, which I find appealing.

The flavors seem a bit muted. Lots of body, but not a lot of details. Kind of monotone.

I think this would be a good tobacco for someone wanting to move from aromatic and dip their toe into a nice relaxing smoke.

Hope this doesn't pollute the maw thread, just wanted to highlight one of the samples so generously shared with me.

I don't know what I don't know.

Haunted Bookshop.....
Might be how I'm chugging away at it, but it feels like it could be a bit of a Nic Bomb. 😁😁😁😁

Great lineup Nate!!! Gotta run out the door to go have dinner with my Brother before he drives back to Ohio, so no sampling tonight, but they all smell amazing! That Bobs caught me off guard, since it still smells like tobacco, with just a smidge of chocolate hanging out in the background!

Along with some Mississippi River I can send off some Yakima Valley and Puget Sound.
